Subject: [PATCH 3.2 061/185] devpts: plug the memory leak in kill_sb

3.2.54-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Ilija Hadzic <ihadzic@...earch.bell-labs.com>

commit 66da0e1f9034140ae2f571ef96e254a25083906c upstream.

When devpts is unmounted, there may be a no-longer-used IDR tree hanging
off the superblock we are about to kill.  This needs to be cleaned up
before destroying the SB.

The leak is usually not a big deal because unmounting devpts is typically
done when shutting down the whole machine.  However, shutting down an LXC
container instead of a physical machine exposes the problem (the garbage
is detectable with kmemleak).
